front fork seals, piece of cake
I had a front seal leaking and knew I had to change them. With the manual and how to's from here, it was so easy. I thought that after 22 years the shocks would never come out of the steering head tree. No problem! My only problem was the local dealer. I got the seals a couple weeks ago and figured to get the wheel bearings after tax time. The dealer said sure we have them, only to not have everything when I went to get them. Another weekend job I guess. Also took the time when everything was off to take w/d sand paper and really make the shock bottoms and the rim to shine! I think with a little time these old bikes could really make a show piece!

Yep, they can really sparkle if you're willing to take the time.

Have a look at what this fellow did to transform this '85 Wing
